When they grant dependent PR (even though in reality this term is not used), they take into consideration

1. The main applicant's income (in your cause your husband's salary). Whether he can support the dependent with this income?
2. How long have they been married?
3. How long were you in Singapore before the application?
4. etc

So, based on the above, i feel the chances are close to nil for you at the moment.

Is your new husband a PR? You only mention that you were thinking about applying for PR. As he's here on a work pass he would have to file as well otherwise it's not going to happen. As he is a Malaysian, I'm assuming that he's a Malaysian Chinese? Depending on his degree, years in Singapore and salary (at least 4.5K/mo) it's possible but based on the limited info you have given us, I'd say it's nil chance of approval at this juncture.

Apply for LTVP and wait for two years. Then apply for PR. If you don't get it, maybe your LTVP will be upgraded to LTVP+ which will allow you to work with a Letter of Consent (It will be available for spouses of PRs as well as SCs after the 1st of January.) In the meantime you can try to get a job based on your own merits (but I wouldn't hold my breath - However you might be able to find something on a WP.) Applying now I feel will be a total waste of time and emotion.
